Two years before his death, August Wilson wrote and performed this one-man play about the power of art and the power of possibility. Recently produced at New York's Signature Theatre and directed by Todd Kreidler, Wilson's friend and protege, How I Learned explores his days as a struggling young writer in Pittsburgh's Hill District and how the neighborhood and its people inspired his amazing cycle of plays about the African-American experience.

Barbra Streisand's coffee table book, My Passion for Design, inspired this hilarious fictional account of what goes on in her Malibu estate's basement, which has become an arcade of shops displaying the fabulous stuff the superstar has collected.
